Fate T Harlaown – Barrier Jacket True Sonic Form ~ フェイト・Ｔ・ハラオウン バリアジャケット 真・ソニックフォーム
Posted by meronpan on September 11, 2009
Woulda loved for this to be a review of Alter’s release, but alas gonna have to wait a bit longer for that. Nope, today is Volks’ take on feito-chan’s shin-sonic form. She’s 1/7, ~8000 yen, and not bad!
Been kinda wary of Volks after getting their trio of the mugen no frontier gals. Got fate ‘cuz I liked the pose and one can’t have too many zamber form bardiches :P
Thought I’d give white a try to help her black outfit stand out. Unfortunately I don’t really have the right light setup for that at the moment. Ends up causing some vignette like issues.
I forget where I read it but whoever had issues with a loose left hand isn’t alone.
Once in place it’s resting on the blade so it’s fine, but when moving, beware of losing parts.
For some reason I’m partial to these mouth open yelling faces ^^;
The finish on Volks’ stuff always feels quite a bit rougher compared to Alter… but luckily fate’s outfit is fairly simple so it turned out fine.
You can see my umbrella in her oppai ^^;
Other hand. If you view the full size you can see the roughness I’m talking about. I guess you could call it intentional to make the armor looked aged or battle worn? ^^;
Looking for interesting shots, tried framing with her hair ^^;
I forget what the technique of placing a subject deliberately off center is called, but I like attempting it.
oppai to oshiri
Switched back to black to see how they’d compare.
Also give ya a look at riot zamber & smiling face. Oh yes, and if you were wondering, neither hand had any looseness problems in this configuration.
Base is pretty nice. Kinda busy but I think it looks pretty good.
Though… mine came with a buncha weird circular indentations in it! >_< you can see ’em pretty clearly on the full size pic. Not sure what the heck that’s all about.
Perhaps a properly constructed light box would eliminate the umbrella oppai ^^;
You can see my troubles get enough light on the background to blow it out…
Saw a soft box going pretty cheap and will probably get some more powerful bulbs along with it…
I always like it when they sculpt the hair flowing about
Seam in her head is where it detaches so you can swap faces. As usual, would’ve appreciated a bit more detail in her hair here.
With some editing I was able to blow out the background in some pics ^^
Together with her alter og version
Update! Check out Yuki-To’s figure.fm post for some lovely outdoor pics!
Also, fyi if you frequent figure.fm you’ve probably noticed I cross post review pics there. Pics are the same but they’re displayed at a much higher resolution since the articles aren’t sharing horizontal real estate with columns ^^;
Not a bad release, but not jaw dropping like when I saw alter’s version in akiba ^^; Pose is nice and it’s cool that you can swap between whichever zamber form you want.
